New iPad app delivers 198mph Bentley Continental GT experience and exclusive, multi-media motoring content
(Crewe, England. 7 October, 2010). Bentley's just-launched 2011 Continental GT is proving to be one of the big talking points at this year's Paris Motor Show. But now iPad owners can get their own private VIP tickets (without having to leave the home or office) and a first glimpse of this distinctively styled, high performance British GT courtesy of a new free iPad app – http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/bentley-pure-bentley/id393106504.
The Continental GT's sharp, muscular and contemporary styling is captured by this bespoke iPad app with both portrait and landscape images formatted to optimum screen resolutions.
An extensive and exclusive selection of 'on location' photography, as well as a range of zoomable super-high quality studio shots, bring the car's dramatic styling lines to life for iPad users. The images are downloadable (or can be shared with friends) with just one simple click.
A unique range of Continental GT driving footage and behind-the-scenes multimedia movies from Bentley's styling studios, test track and special 'insider' views from the factory floor are also being offered.
But it's not just the new Continental GT that's on show. There's also the opportunity to take a closer look at the Mulsanne, Bentley's new luxury flagship, as well as catching a flying glimpse of the company's extreme 204mph (329km/h) supercar - the Continental Supersports.
In addition, users can take a longer and more leisurely drive through the Bentley story. The app will guide you through the company's long and victorious association with racing at Le Mans, offer a detailed introduction to the unique skills of the craftsmen and women who fashion cars like the Mulsanne as well as the vast array of classic monochrome images from the past.
